The terrifying moment a SWAT team boarded a plane because a passenger reportedly threatened to blow it up has been caught on camera.
Two fighter jets were scrambled to escort the Sunwing Airlines plane back to the Pearson Internationo Airport in Toronto after a passenger rowed with a flight attendant when he found out certain duty free items were not available.
According to the Metro, the passenger, Ali Shahi, 25, became angry at the flight attendant and said he a bomb and everyone on the plane would die.
The Guardian reports that Major Julie Roberge of North American Aerospace Defence Command (NORAD) said the jets flew up to join Sunwing Airlines flight 772 as a "precaution".
The Panama-bound plane turned around about 45 minutes into the flight.
Sharon Ramsay, who was a passenger on the flight, told Sky News: "The pilot came on and said there was a threat and they had to take it seriously and turn around and we're heading back to Toronto, so that's what happened.
"We came back and waited on the tarmac for about an hour and then the task force came in, they stormed in. It was extremely scary.
One passenger managed to capture the terrifying moment on his phone and uploaded the footage online.
The Canadian man was arrested on suspicion of threatening the aircraft and is in custody.
